On account of the corona virus pandemic we are closed for routine treatments. We regret this action but it is essential for the safety of our patients and staff.
We are expecting the Government to modify its position on this unsustainable situation soon and are currently working on procedures that will allow us to deal with dental emergencies without risk to our patients or staff.
However reception is open and we are still providing a service for patients in pain.
You can speak to a receptionist on 01 730 812 022 between the hours of 09:30 am and 1 pm.
Or at other times please email: firstname.lastname@example.org giving us your name and phone number and we will call you back.
Under exceptional circumstances between the hours of 2 pm and 5:30 pm please telephone 07850201259.
There is no charge for this service.
Please do not arrive at the surgery without an appointment.
Outside of working hours and at weekends if you are a regular patient of this practice, and have an acute dental emergency, please telephone our Independant Dental Rota on 01 243 958 900.
This service can offer free advice, issue prescriptions and possibly more.
An additional service, run by the NHS in Chichester can be accessed by phoning 01 243 793 697.
The NHS have also issued an email address: email@example.com

And from all of us at St.Oswald’s please stay safe
Acrylic dentures offer the least expensive method of tooth replacement. They can be useful when multiple teeth have been lost especially when the remaining teeth are of dubious prognosis but they can be less comfortable to wear than their chromium based counterparts and more damaging to the remaining teeth and gums. The teeth are matched in shape and colour to the remaining dentition, these are set in pink acrylic ‘gums’ which continue around the remaining teeth. Metal arms (clasps), can be incorporated to give added stability
We are extracting far fewer teeth than we used to, so thankfully the situation where there are no teeth left to support a denture is becoming increasingly rare.
If a patient requires a full denture we have many years of experience at providing the best in terms of aesthetics and comfort. At least five appointments are usually required.
